  • Wedding: June 2012

Awww, I’m so sorry. My grandma passed away when I was 18 (my grandpa when I was 20), and my grandma was one of my favorite people in the world. She taught me how to sew, how to cook, how to be a stubborn pain in the ass. My grandpa used to tease her because she was in a gang as a teenager..but a gang in the 40s meant that she stood around on the street corners in Hawaii (where she was from), smoked and cussed. Apparently her nickname was Rusty…and she absolutely hated it when he called her that. This still makes me laugh. They were together for over 50 years, and they teased each other and gave each other crap all the time–lovingly. I hope my marriage is like theirs.

I wish more than anything that they could be here for my wedding in June. She passed away about a month before I met Fiance, and I wish she could have met him–she would have loved him. My grandpa liked him a lot. But I know that they will have front row seats for the wedding, even if it’s just in heaven (perhaps with binoculars?).

So.. what I’m trying to say: of course he’ll be there, even if it’s just in your heart. But he wouldn’t want you to not get married just because he’s not around, would he? He wouldn’t want you to feel like that, he’d want you to be happy.
